“The most perfect getaway”
Reviewed 18 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We have just spent the week here with children ranging from 8 to 15 and grandparents everyone loved it! The estate is fantastic and has such a clean and safe environment and the kids did not stop the whole time swimming cycling tennis and football! We also took the dogs and they had a fab time! The house is faultless absolutely gorgeous we did not want to leave, everything is there and so organised and the owners are so friendly and helpful can't wait to go back next year!

“Ideal for family gathering”
Reviewed 19 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The house was beautifully light, well equipped and warm. There were eight of us, my wife and I and our three children and their partners. We were comfortably accommodated with everything we needed. The estate was quite quiet even though it was half term, we enjoyed the pool, sauna, steam room and restaurant.
The daunting list of rules received on booking was somewhat off-putting, but may have been a requirement of the estate rather than the owners.

Management Response
20 Feb 2017
Hi Chris
Thank you so much for your lovely review. It's so good to hear that the improvements we have made are being appreciated. As you have rightly remarked we have to share the list of rules with you as a part of the estate requirements and whilst we were do agree that it can be a little off putting, it is a great deterrent for hens, stags and house party type of gatherings. Sadly the estate management has experienced issues in the past and as a result had to adopt this policy, which in return has improved the overall experience for families staying on Lower Mill estate.
We do hope to be of service to you again.

“Excellent find”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Loved our stay here. We were a group of 5 couples (including x2 pregnant women) and a toddler. Booking was easy and lots of useful information provided.
The house was ideal with lots of outdoor space and a beautiful view over the lake.
Only slight issue was enough hot water for us all and some of the beds were quite low.
The estate is so special, everything you could want on site, restaurant, shop, spa, pools etc, we will definitely return.

“Amazing house, amazing setting”
Reviewed 31 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

9 humans & 2 dogs for one weekend - fantastic. The setting of this property is ideal for walking or relaxing breaks. Peaceful second home with beautiful lake side location. Highly recommended. It is now on my "when I win the lottery" list to buy a property on this site

“good for a crowd”
Reviewed 19 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Surprisingly big planned development that has a good number of units rented out on a regular basis. Nice place for a few days' holiday. Stayed at 27/28 Howells Mere with family and explored the surrounding area. Lots of good walks, a nice spa with pools and exercise equipment, and obviously lots of natural beauty. Only downside is that there is still plenty of development going on, which detracts from the scenery a bit.

27 Howells Mere is where I spent most of my time. Some aspects of the house don't make a lot of sense, for example the main bathroom on the middle floor of the house has a mirror, but it's like 6 feet off the wall and you have to crane your neck and lean over the toilet in order to see yourself. There was also no shower curtain or anything at all on the bathtub, so it's baths only. That would be fine if the house weren't full, but we had 3 people sharing that bathroom in addition to one other bath on the floor, so it was not ideal.

Additionally, if you've got a full house you'll be scrounging for clean dishes if you're cooking most meals in. We had the dishwasher running pretty much nonstop, but it takes hours to finish, so it's pretty much impossible to get a load of dishes clean in between meals. I would recommend going out for lunch so there's time for your breakfast dishes to be clean again before dinner!

If there's anyone in your group who has trouble with stairs, I would not recommend this particular unit due to the top floor kitchen setup. It does provide nice views out over the water, but there are lots of stairs to climb to get up there. Not a problem for me, but if you're traveling with any older folks it may be difficult for them to get up there.
